I keep going back and forth on whether or not #2 is a good idea right now. I wanted another, then I was positively sure I didn't (and went on Depo Provera). Then a few months later I did again. My cycle was a bit funky and I started second (third?) guessing myself. I'm not really sure what to do. I'm afraid one of these times I'll have a pro-baby week and get pregnant, only to regret it once morning sickness and fatigue kick in. Or that I'll chicken out every time I get fertile and make myself miserable waiting for the 'right time'.

This Mommy and Military Daddy are loving their son.

I know what you mean! I think that's very natural when TTC - I actually started a thread about it and a few women chimed in that they felt the same. I am almost always just aching to be pregnant, but once and a while I'll look at my two year old and think, "But he's still a baby!" or wonder if I'll be taking away something from him. I would wait until you're more sure than not, I guess.

Girl absolutely in love with boy and our DD (11/06), DS1 (08/11) and DS2 (brand new!)
